    As with any Springboard module, installation is designed to be a snap. You simply plug the Thinmodem Plus into the Visor and all the necessary software is installed for you automatically. The modem didn't come with a CD, so there wasn't any external software to install. The installation process is VERY user friendly. The Thinmodem Plus software pretty much walks you through the entire setup process. Once you start it up you're greeted to a choice of setup options to get you started. From there you can set the various modem and network preferences. More importantly, you can set your dial up and network settings for your ISP. Everything is laid out for you in a neatly organized wizard type interface. Once you've set all that up and get online, you'll have to set up the web browser and email software before you can start using it. The installation guide that comes with the Thinmodem Plus explains how to do all this.

    To set up Browse-it, you have to create an account with Intellisync at Browse-it uses the user name and password you created, so you have to register if you want to use it. After that, you can dive into the information super highway. Configuring One-Touch is similar to configuring any other email client. You have to specify the protocol being used (POP3 or IMAP4), the name of the incoming and outgoing server, your user name and password, the IP addresses of your primary/secondary DNS servers, and a communication script if it's needed. The instructions will walk you through the process so you don't get confused. That's pretty much it. After configuring everything, you can just go ahead and use the applications. They are pretty much intuitive, but if you're not familiar with them or if they seem confusing, the guide does come with instructions on using the apps.

    That was the modem side of things. The Thinmodem Plus also serves as a flash memory module. You can move and run programs directly on the flash memory. However, you'll have to be careful because some programs that access databases may not run. The included File Mover application makes managing your programs a breeze. You can organize everything so that you have the programs you need right on the module. For example, you might want to have more games on hand when you travel but you don't use them all the time so they'd just waste space on the internal Visor memory. By placing them in the Thinmodem Plus memory, you will have access to them when you need them the most.
